In my last Tech Tip I asked what technology you received for Christmas. Today I’m asking you what you’re willing to do about it. In short, are you making and keeping resolutions to learn how to use your new tech? What about your old tech?

Bookmarking web pages is essential for those pages you need to rapidly access for your legal nurse consultant business. And, if you’re at all like me you’ve got lots of bookmarks in your Chrome® browser.
Everyone likes to keep their phones handy at all times. Whether it’s in your pocket, purse, cup holder in your car or on your desk. Communication is key for all Certified Legal Nurse Consultants, their legal nurse consulting subcontractors and attorney-clients.
I was complaining to a friend about the life of my iPhone® battery. My friend, who’s not normally on the cutting edge of tech, told me that I had too many background apps running and that I should shut them all down. This (finger waving in the air) he claimed was adversely affecting my battery life.
